From editor or global species database
Editor's comment On usage in Annelida. Scolopendra major tubularia is an annelid. Baster (1759) presented the name as "Scolopendra majore, tubularia" which is dubiously a Linnaean-form Latin name. It does not appear to be intended as a subspecies or variety name. Knight-Jones & Perkins included it in the synonymy of Sabella pavonina, a junior name, without comment, although probably not regarding it as an available name. Possibly Knight-Jones & Perkins came across the name in McIntosh (1922), as earlier the Hartman catalogue (p. 567) listed the McIntosh usage (1922: 224) as "Scolopendra major tubularia" in the synonymy of Sabella penicillus. [details]
